Former Bears GM Jerry Angelo critical of Jay Cutler

Let’s just say this is bulletin board material. Not sure where this came from but  From former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo’s blog, The Score’s Joe Ostrowski tweeted: Jerry Angelo on Cutler: “Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch. Mostly due to a lack of poise.” (1/3) #Bears — Joe Ostrowski (@JoeO670) February... Read more »

Being on the pro-Jay Cutler side of the debate

A couple days ago, I wrote about what goes through the mind of a Jay Cutler hater. It’s funny because some haters actually nodded in agreement with the post and they failed to see how dumb their logic really is. The supporters just shrug, shake their head, and let the dumb be dumb. DISCLOSURE: I... Read more »

The thought process of a Jay Cutler hater

After Jay Cutler signed his seven-year $126 million contract, I’ve had many discussions and debates (sometimes heated) about whether or not it was the right decision. The topics of discussion have ranged from how Cutler is 1-9 against the Packers and most recently didn’t do enough to win against the Packers, his poor leadership skills,... Read more »

Bears lose to Vikings: Lack the killer instinct

I’m not really mad about Trestman opting to kick a field goal on second down to end the game. Robbie Gould is usually money from any distance to win the game. He just missed. I’m more mad about the sequence of plays following the Khaseem Greene interception in the 4th quarter. After the McCown fumble,... Read more »

Cutler aiming for an early return

All is not lost Bears fans. After the initial four-week prognosis, Jay Cutler is aiming to return before then. Brandon Marshall eluded to this last week but Marc Trestman cautioned against an early return. Bears have a tough game against the Packers at Lambeau, then at home against the Ravens. Cutler could be back in... Read more »

Next man up, Jon Bostic

Henry Melton, IR. Next man up, Nate Collins, ditto. D.J. Williams. He gone. Next man up, Jon Bostic. Bostic made quite an impression on the 4th Phase during the preseason. Fans wanted him to start probably for a couple reasons. He played well enough to earn the starting job and fans may have wanted to... Read more »

Bears win against the Giants is a win

Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy the Bears are 4-2 sitting atop of the NFC North after the Lions lose to the AFC North leading Browns. You might not be impressed with how the Bears seemingly squeaked by the Giants but make not mistake about it, a win is a win. The Giants have historically... Read more »

Meet Martellus Bennett at Verizon Wireless in Chicago

I am proud to announce that I’ve been chosen to be a part of the Verizon Fan Voices program for this season. As a diehard Bears fan who loves gadgets and technology, this was an absolute no-brainer. I was provided with a Droid Maxx and its 48 hour battery which will outlast all the tweets... Read more »

Urlacher doesn't care about the 4th Phase

When defending Lovie Smith, Urlacher said “Two of the people I don’t care about: fans or media. They can say what they want to about our head coach, about our players…It does bother me. They don’t know what they’re talking about, obviously.” When taking the quote into context, Urlacher was referring to those who want... Read more »
